Just yesterday we saw benchmark test results that seemed to confirm that the mysterious ASUS TF300T tablet would have a quad-core Tegra 3 processor inside. We also saw that it had a 1280 x 800 resolution, 10-inch display. But today it looks like the cat is totally out of the bag.
A Polish news site, Tabletowo.pl, got a screenshot comparing the various ASUS tablet offerings, one of which is the TF300T. It seems like the differences between the Transformer Prime and the TF300T amount to the TF300T being a very slightly lower-end, and likely cheaper, version of the Transformer Prime.
|Transformer Prime (TF201)||TF300T|
|1.3 GHz Tegra 3||1.2 GHz Tegra 3|
|32/64 GB internal storage||16 GB internal storage|
|8 MP rear camera with flash||8 MP rear camera no flash|
|.5-hr internal battery life,18 hrs with dock||8.5-hr internal battery life,12.5 hrs with dock|
|582 g||640 g|
|8.3 mm thick||9.9 mm thick|
There still isn’t any pricing information available for the TF300T, but if it does turn out to be a cheaper alternative to the Transformer Prime, its pricing should start below $499.
Another little tidbit was revealed by the comparison table: the ASUS TF700T, the refresh to the Transformer Prime with a high-res 1900 x 1200 display will supposedly be running a dual-core Qualcomm processor instead of the quad-core Tegra 3, probably to help keep the price low (or the profit margin high).
With all of this information leaked now, it would be surprising if ASUS didn’t make an announcement regarding the TF300T at Mobile World Congress.
